    No the team has been around forever its had the same name it would cost millions to change the name I undersand the native americans are offended by it. But its only been the last couple years its really gotten the attention were in a time where everything you say and do can be considered offensive you cant say gay,or anything else nowdays without being sued fired etc whatever happened to freedom of speech in this country its football its a name get over it

    Yes, there's no reason for it. Change it to something Washington DC related.

    Keep it. They have done enough rebranding to cover up negative racial undertones. There was similar debate about the Cleveland Indians 10 years ago.... they rebranded (no more chief wahoo) and nobody talks about it anymore.
